What not to do after a flu shot?23.09.2022
Influenza vaccination contraindications and side effects
Many, having decided to get vaccinated, first of all ask themselves the question of what, after a flu shot, it is impossible (for example, to do or eat), but what is possible. And they forget that the flu vaccine also has contraindications that should be followed in order to avoid unwanted side effects. Thus, influenza vaccination is not recommended for people with an allergic reaction to the chicken protein contained in the vaccine, with exacerbated chronic diseases or fever.
Secondly, you need to be prepared for the fact that even if you follow all the recommendations that you should not do after a flu shot, vaccination can still cause side effects for you. It is reassuring that the risk of their development with influenza vaccination is extremely small. So, only 1% of adult Russians vaccinated against influenza have general reactions that last no more than a day – a short-term increase in temperature (not higher than 37.5 ° C), weakness, slight chills. Dress warmly on this day.
